Seasonal Appeal: combating child cancer

The FT launches its campaign in support of World Child Cancer


The FT MBA Challenge is an annual challenge inviting MBA alumni and students to consult on problems faced by FT seasonal appeal partners. The challenge launches every January in the FT MBA magazine and runs until September with winners announced in October and interviewed for ft.com.

Teams can be made up of between three and eight students, of whom at least one must be studying at a university of business school in Europe, a second in the Americas and a third in Asia or Africa. At least one participant in each team must be studying for an MBA at the point of registration.

This year's seasonal appeal partner is World Child Cancer.

To register for the challenge, email mba.challenge@ft.com. The deadline to register is 31 March 2014.
